I found some nice color combinations in an illustration I saw and thought I'd apply them to something more to my aesthetics. This was some experimentation in my sketchbook that I thought was interesting. Funny how it just reminds me of Thor now though, which wasn't really my intention, if he was a golden model. Haha.

There have been quite a few owl commissions. The top is a sketch in watercolor and was a little too serious for the patron, and so the bottom 2 were made on wood panels, stained, and painted with acrylic. There is a 3rd in the set I was unable to take a picture of, of 2 owls, hopefully I can get one soon.

Unfortunately until then I will only have thumbnail views on the website. It was frustrating at times getting the template to work with me but I eventually found alternatives to my ideas of the layout. I decided to go with a simple grid as opposed to putting a functional scrolling widget from the Dripbook site for the simple reasons of quicker upload. I'm all about quicker upload. Not to mention I wouldn't have to integrate the look of the widget to my site, as I like to keep it simple.

I recently got commissioned to do an animal piece depicting the pets of a friend. I don't often do pieces consisting of animals since humans are where I feel more comfortable but I love exploring animal shapes and textures. Here is the progression of the thumbnail from this upcoming piece. This is about 2"x3".
I hope to accomplish more works delving into other creatures and/or creations. I have a few sketches I'll post soon on elephants, inspired by a friend's nightmare. I thought it would be nice to reconcile the two and perhaps they wouldn't scare him so much :)
